Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


  • I finally have a firm diagnosis for the numbness in the fingers of my left hand
  • It is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
  • I have been having this numbness from late 2015
  • I had consulted a neurologist long ago who somehow missed this diagnosis
  • I consulted another neurologist a few days back, a very senior doctor at Care Hospital
  • He got some tests done which confirmed his initial suspicion of CTS
  • I am scheduled to undergo surgery to decompress the nerve today at around 9 am
  • By the time you read this, I should have been done!
  • Let's hope the surgery helps to relieve my symptoms
